Visited for Dinner on a Friday night while visiting Anchorage. The place was packed, and they have a "seat yourself" policy, luckily we found literally the last open table, outside in the back.
Clearly they pride themselves on their massive draft list of over 50 beers. The beer menu was very nicely organized by style, and noted if a beer was local and listed ABV for some, and a price category. The assortment was a nice mix of locals, American Craft, and Belgians.
Our server was average, and so was the food. My wife's seafood was okay, but they totally overcooked my steak.
Recommend for drinks, but don't take a large group or you may be waiting a long time to snag a table.

It's a little dark, they do live music but I'm never into the band, kind of a loud bar to be honest and not exactly my scene.
The quality of the food is hit and miss, there are certain items on the menu that I really like, such as the crab roll and certain items that I think are repulsive such as their halibut tacos, check out the Bear Tooth for good halibut tacos in Anchorage.
The service has always been fine, nothing special but they are always courteous and fairly quick with my food and drink.
The selection is fairly extensive but I don't think that it goes far enough for a place that calls itself an "alehouse" it's not as repetitive as your typical bar but there is a certain lack of depth to the beers that they carry.
The place is pricey and there are better spots in Anchorage to get a beer. Just average in my opinion.
